BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The JCC Camp Ruach celebrated Israel Day, creating a State of Israel at the camp's 14-acre location.
The camp is run by the Shimon and Sara Birnbaum Jewish Community Center, in Bridgewater.
Throughout the day, campers and counselors enjoyed a day of Israeli themed activities, with campers participating in Israeli dancing and boot camp, eating falafal, shopping at the Israeli Market and decorating maps of Israel and more.
Different locations around the grounds were designed with different Israeli cities, including Tel Aviv, Eilat and Jerusalem.
In addition, this summer the camp hosted two Israeli ambassadors, who worked at the camp as a specialist and a counselor.
